The Magic Members plugin is constantly introducing new features. One of the latest additions is the new Member List feature. It can be used for a variety of different purposes to enhance a membership site and increase user interactivity. Here is a quick overview of this new feature and how it can be used.
What is the New Member List Feature?
The new Member List feature is an easy way to create a member directory. It is an additional functionality that works with the Public User Profile feature. Website owners can now give members direct access to a full member’s directory. This is a great way to give members the ability to communicate with other members without needing to maintain a full-fledged forum.
How Does the New Member List Feature Work?
To make integration easy, website owners can manage everything through short codes. Here is a quick example of how the short codes can be used.[user_list use_field=image, first_name, last_name, email, zip use_filter=email, zip, first_name sort_by=id, username, email, reg_date, zip, last_name sort_type=desc, asc page_limit=10]
By giving the website owner a variety of built-in shortcode parameters, the Member List feature is extremely flexible and customizable. The key areas to focus on when using the shortcode is the use_field, use_filter, sort_by, sort_type, and page_limit. These commands are what make the Member List feature so flexible. It gives you completely control over the members included in the list, how they are sorted, how they are filtered, and even the amount of results displayed on a page. Continue Reading
